difficult, intense day with this hostage situation that ended with police shooting and killing the hostage taker, the suspect in this case. as i mentioned, georgia avenue remains closed in this area. the maryland state police are here assisting the police with some of the traffic control, traffic direct in this area. it took a lot of law enforcement to handle the investigation, the situation, the hostage negotiations. so they did receive some help from other jurisdictions, keeping vehicleses and people out of the crime scene for much of the day today. i was able to speak to one woman who know the suspect who was shot and killed by police this afternoon. she indicated that she had met him several time at a borders book store. he would go in there and sxreed do some ranting about the discovery channel. and she said that at one point, he had paid her to read a book. and she took money, $100. and also, she had seen the protest a couple years ago that landed him in jail.
